Policies on Human Rights

Based on our belief that negative impacts of our business activities on human rights should be identified and reduced, the Toyo Ink Group share our “Code of Business Ethics,” which stipulates respect for basic human rights and others, with overseas Group companies as well, in our efforts to entrench the idea of respect for human rights in the overall Group.
In addition, in consideration of the international human rights movements recently, we have issued and informed “Human Resources Policy,” which is aimed at developing and improving personnel management systems of overseas Group companies. In this policy, our basic approach to personnel affairs is described systematically.
